Arturo Vidal has revealed a pact he has with his agent which means he will hear about any interest in his services, following strong rumours over a possible move to Manchester United.

The Chile star finds himself sitting on top of Louis van Gaal’s transfer wish-list, if speculation is to be believed, and has been hotly tipped to make a big-money switch to Old Trafford in the future. Despite repeatedly claiming that he is happy with Juventus, Vidal finds himself persistently the subject of transfer gossip, and has once again been forced to play down the idea of making a departure.

This time Vidal has confirmed that he never thought about leaving Turin over the summer, and did not talk with his agent concerning a possible move to United, according to the Daily Express.

Vidal comments

The truth is I was relaxed and calm this summer, focusing only on my knee," he said.

"I never once asked my agent or Juventus if something was happening.

"I have a pact with my agent: if there is something concrete, then he alerts me. He did not alert me.

"I don’t know exactly what happened during the summer, but I doubt it was anything truly important, otherwise he would’ve warned me.”

Improving United

An attacking midfielder by trade, Vidal has proven over the years that he’s more than capable of cutting it at the highest level. Having been admired by former Red Devils boss David Moyes, the interest in his services has carried over to Van Gaal’s reign, with the Dutchman wanting to make him a lynchpin in his newly-formed midfield.

Yet his importance to Juve cannot be understated, and it will take a hefty fee of around €66million if United want to prise him away in January. Regardless of his various injury issues he remains arguably the Serie A giant’s most influential player, and so convincing both him and his club to negotiate a transfer could be very tricky indeed.
